JUBILEE EVENTS AT ST MARY’S PRIORY
Last evening on the Eve of Her Majesty’s 60th Anniversary of Accession to the throne we had a Service of Thanksgiving.
Speaking at the service, Fr Mark Soady (Vicar) reflected on what is Christian Monarchy with the aid of King David, King Wencleslas and the Three Kings. ” As the oriental kings traveled to worship our Lord and Saviour, so our Queen’s faith can not be questioned by any one who has listened to her Christmas Address to the nation. As the Bohemian King Wencleslas (made famous by the carol) was a caring King, so Her Majesty has used he role increasingly to advance the common good.”
When her grandfather King George V was crowned we marked the occasion with renovation work to the church tower, we now do the same to mark this royal jubilee. Work on the tower should be completed by early March.
The Sunday of Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend we will join the nation for lunch
